Daily Focus – Justice – Balance

Keyword: Balance

 

Focus: Truth today brings balance to the scales. Justice on inner planes is to bring a balance to our thoughts and emotions, and thereby to our spirit.  This card is often seen as that sort of universal justice embodied in the saying “what goes around, comes around”, but we all know it’s not really that simple, don’t we?  Many of us receive heartache we’ve never given, while others go unpunished for grievous acts.

So ultimately our own justice, our balance, our truth, needs to be in our actions in and of themselves. Today’s reading includes a caution against that feeling of either “I don’t deserve this” or “I do deserve this!”. The universe owes us nothing. We’re not kind because we may then receive kindness in return.  We’re kind because it’s our choice to be so.  Because it’s our true will and to act in accordance with our true will brings us our own balance.  Our own truth.  And that must be enough.

Do:

  • You.
  • Balance.
  • Truth.

 

Don’t: 

  • Negotiate.
  • Make excuses.
  • Alibi.

Photo Quality Test

So, y’all know I’m tying to edit my pics so they still look good but are smaller in size.  My hosting plan is killing’ me!  What do you all think of this photo?  Don’t be shy.  Please tell me if it’s crappy in any way on your browser or phone.

Thanks!

Please Forgive My Mess

Hello, lovely people.  Please forgive the mess around here as I rework a lot of posts and redo all of my tarot photos. As mentioned on my Patreon, finances are tight and I’ve had to do some witchy scrambling to renew my hosting and now I need to edit my tarot photos for size because I’m about to list scads of new items in the shop and I’m running out of storage space! (No, photos yet, but a little hint of new items upcoming son will be herbal fumigation wands grown and harvested here in Thornesworld, a few new jumbo spell candles and incense blends, including Sex Magick & Road Opening, several fun pagan/witchy t-shirt designs, a bunch of pewter jewelry, bags and more….)

I’m hoping not to lose too much quality on the tarot images, and I’ll  continue to give you the multiple high quality product images as always.

 

Again, thank you for your patience and understanding.

  • Prepare.
  • Pillows.
  • Lightness.

Daily Focus -Two of Pentacles – Struggle

Keyword: Struggle

(Apologies for the stock image, I’m redoing photos and uploads and haven’t gotten this one done yet.)

Focus: Balance sought, teetering on the precipice of movement or even a fall.   It’s so difficult sometimes to handle two equally important issues in our lives, especially when they seem to be in opposition of each other.

And so we move through these difficult days, presenting that false cheerful face to the world, pretending to enjoy even the struggle. Find someone to share the truth with.  Tell them that you’re overwhelmed and feeling stuck.  Sometimes just sharing it with another human relieves enough pressure that we may begin to see the next steps, if not the solution.


Do:

  • Breathe.
  • Seek.
  • Share.

 

Don’t: 

  • Despair.
  • Surrender.
  • Flee.

Daily Focus – Three of Swords – Care

Keyword: Care

 

Focus: Everyone fears this card and it’s message of heartbreak, but we know the pain of too much tenderness and we must remember that this too shall pass.  Perhaps things aren’t working out as you’d hoped.  Perhaps an old wound has been reopened and started to bleed again. The message here is to exercise care and extend compassion.  Care for your own heart and have a care for others in your world.



Do:

  • Feel your emotions.
  • Practice self care.
  • Forgive yourself.


Don’t: 

  • Repress.
  • Blame yourself.
  • Run away.

Daily Focus – Seven of Swords – Discretion

Keyword: Discretion

Focus: There are times when acting in a straightforward manner can be to our detriment. As much as we might prefer to be transparent in our dealings, just lay everything out on the table, sometimes tact, diplomacy and discretion are in order.

Do:

  • Be tactful and diplomatic.
  • Be sure you understand your goal.
  • Be sure what you wish is yours to have.


Don’t: 

  • Deceive yourself or others.
  • Feel guilt or shame.
  • Take what isn’t yours.

Tarot Tuesday – Two of Cups – Imbalanced

Keyword: Imbalanced

Focus: Are you feeling a bit out of balance?  Our watery cups speak especially to our emotions. When our emotions are balanced we can safely respond to them in many ways.  Communication, touch, sexuality, all flow with ease.  When our emotions are out of balance, either within ourselves or in a situation or relationship, our expressions of them can also get out of whack.

Are we wanting more or less touch, sex or even verbal intimacy? Reach inside and spend some time with your emotions.  Own them.  Remember, nobody is making you feel any particular way. How we respond to emotional triggers and situations is on us.  It’s our healing to work.


Do:

  • Be self honest.
  • Nurture.
  • Relax.

 

Don’t: 

  • Push.
  • Avoid.
  • Cling.

Daily Focus – Page of Swords – Refrain

Keyword: Refrain

Focus: We all have both light and shadow sides, and the page is here to remind us of that.  Your careful, courageous, and serious light side can swiftly be overcome by the darkness of spite, waste, aggression, and failure to see the truth. Today is not the day to let your shadow self have free reign.  They may do more harm than good, and need to be reined in, no matter how justified you may feel. Don’t pry or spy. Lighten up.  Hold off.  Don’t take any actions you’ll later regret.


Do:

  • Pause.
  • Light.
  • Care.


Don’t: 

  • Attack.
  • Waste.
  • Stew.
